Video of the Day of Mourning – A Quiet Call for Justice

By Diane Coleman: For More Info, Go Here…

A month ago, we shared an announcement from the Autistic Self Advocacy Network asking people to participate in the annual Day of Mourning.

On Friday, March 1st, the disability community will gather across the nation to remember these disabled victims of filicide – disabled people murdered by their family members or caregivers.

In the year since our last vigil, our community has lost over 70 more people to filicide. These are just the cases that we are aware of – since we began monitoring this issue, we learn about more murders every week. . . .

In 2019, Day of Mourning events will be held in 33 U.S. cities as well as 9 international cities.

Last year, one such event held in Rochester, New York was recorded by filmmaker Peter Edmondson, who put together a short and very moving video we’d like to share:
